City, meanwhile, maintained their unbeaten start to the league season with a 5-0 thrashing of Crystal Palace.
The Citizens were also involved in Champions League action this week as they beat Shakhtar Donetsk.
The Manchester outfit will be without Sergio Aguero and Benjamin Mendy, who both face lengthy spells on the sidelines.
